Gerard Weber in Concert

Hey friends!┬áHere’s some further information on my saxophone recital taking place Tuesday, March 8:

In August 2015, I commissioned Saskatchewan composer Paul Suchan to write me a piece for alto saxophone and piano to premier at the North American Saxophone Alliance 2016 Biennial Conference in March 2016. This recital will feature two new works by Mr. Suchan that I will be performing at the conference in Lubbock, TX:

Songs of Ebb and Flow (2016) for alto saxophone and piano – Paul Suchan

Danse Exotique des Gros Papillons (2014) arranged for alto saxophone and piano – Paul Suchan

This recital will feature Sofia Mycyk of Saskatoon on piano and guest artist Sarah Suchan on saxophone. Come have a sneak peak of Mr. Suchan’s new works at:
